The Sweetie Chronicles

Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. ~William Wordsworth


I bought my wedding dress last night! I am so excited! I'm not ashamed to say that I found it on Craig's list through an ad. The girl who sold it to me was planning to get married last year and paid over $1500 for the dress. When the wedding fell through, this beautiful, never before worn Maggie Sottero silk dress was just hanging in her closet. I was able to snag it from her for only $200!! With our current budget, it was a great price, especially considering how beautiful and nice a dress it is!

Without any further talk, here are the online pics I was able to find of the dress to show you:

The pictures don't quite do it justice either. The silk is absolutely the most gorgeous material. It is a very simple dress (ignore the feathery looking thing in the girl's hand in the top photo... that is NOT part of the dress, LOL) with just a little bit of beading and embellishment at the top and along one side. With the corset style back, it allows for some weight adjustments. The main thing now is that I pretty much am going to have to lose 20 pounds to look amazing in this dress! I know they say never to buy a dress that is too small hoping you will lose weight, and I imagine that especially applies to things like unreturnable wedding dresses. I don't care though. The way it is, since there's no zipper, the dress basically fits just as it is... or rather just as I am. Still, the corset back has a panel that hides the skin and is supposed to button up and we couldn't get it to button at all. It's not the end of the world, but losing some weight over the next four months is going to be imperative.

With that being said, I couldn't be more excited about my wedding dress! I was hoping to be able to afford something beautiful and glamorous, but given the fact that we're doing a Vegas wedding with just the two of us, I couldn't see spending a fortune just to get a big poofy dress. Problem solved thanks to a local woman who tossed her undeserving man to the curb and was left with the dress of my dreams. :P Haha! Better to lose money on a dress than to marry the wrong guy... trust me on this one.

Now that I have found the RIGHT man, I am very happy to have found the perfect dress to marry him in. Next on the wedding planning agenda? Picking the perfect wedding chapel in Las Vegas.... Oh boy! Wish me luck!
